Fresno, CA (PRWEB) January 10, 2012
ClimateMinder, provider of wireless climate monitoring and control systems for agriculture, has named Tom Devol as its new Vice President of Sales.
As Vice President, Tom oversees direct sales to prime crop and demographic markets and with key ClimateMinder dealers and resellers.
Tom, who most recently served as Sales Manager at PureSense, has long been one of the industry’s most forward-looking and outspoken advocates for the use of new technology in agriculture. With a substantial background in irrigation design and farm-related technological innovation – and nearly a decade’s experience assisting more than 100 California farming operations – he is an ideal fit for ClimateMinder and its customers.
“Tom Devol’s built a stellar reputation as a go-to advisor on using technology to improve growers’ businesses,” says ClimateMinder CEO Bulut Ersavas. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to have him on our team.”
The companies he has guided have seen significant improvements in yields, crop health and operating costs. From managing water and nutrients to maximizing field operations, he has always been a step ahead in implementing new technology solutions – and he considers ClimateMinder’s systems the best available.
Among those systems is the company’s smart-phone and tablet-compatible software, GrowMobileTM, which lets growers monitor and control pumps remotely and wirelessly, turning them on or off, setting thresholds and receiving automatic notifications of condition changes via voice, text or e-mail messaging.
The complete, affordable ClimateMinder solution includes hardware, Web-based software, installation, training, and support. The entire solution pays for itself in just a few months, then goes on to produce large returns on investment for growers.
“I’m excited to work with the expanded ClimateMinder tool-set,” Tom declares. “With extensive disease models, valve and pump control, and a easy-to-use, configurable software app, this company has been leading the way in delivering the information and technology resources growers demand. Used together, these tools can strongly improve yield while driving costs down. I can’t wait to help ClimateMinder take it to the next level.”
He adds that given these cutting-edge features, ClimateMinder systems are surprisingly affordable – and, aided by a highly responsive customer-service department, have prompted an exceptionally high level of customer satisfaction. “Thanks to our tools, growers can essentially tend their fields from their phones and iPads,” Tom points out. “But they also know they can also use those devices to reach out to us anytime. That’s a winning combination.”
Founded in 2005 and based in Glendale, CA, ClimateMinder, Inc. offers a wireless, real-time solution that enables growers to more effectively monitor and control their irrigation. It helps growers reduce costs associated with their use of essential resources such as water, energy, and fertilizers, in addition to increasing crop yield and quality.
